Professor Wayne Turney, Chair, on behalf of the Academic Affairs Committee announces the following changes to the Cultural Literacy approved by the General Education Core Curriculum Committee and the full faculty at its March 19 meeting (changes in italics):
B. Cultural Literacy:
1. 2 courses studying a foreign language other than English. This requirement may also be fulfilled in one of the following ways: 1) study abroad, 2) two world cultures courses, or one world cultures course and one course with an international travel component, when the student completes the international travel that is part of the course. The Dean of Undergraduate Education will decide whether a particular course or experience satisfies the Study Abroad option. Please note: taking one foreign language course and one world cultures course, or one foreign language course and one course with an international travel component, together, does not satisfy this requirement. Students who have earned a high school (or equivalent) degree from any school whose chief instructional language is not English will be awarded six credits and will be exempt from the foreign language/world cultures requirement.
